Inquest due to conclude into death of baby who died at one-day-old


An inquest into the death of a baby who died when he was one-day-old will conclude next Friday, October 22.

The three-day hearing finished hearing from witnesses on Thursday, October 14, after the death of Edward Charles Errington Rozkalns.

The inquest has heard he was born at Nottingham City Hospital on November 23, 2020, at 41 weeks gestation after an induced labour as he was of small-for-gestational-age (SGA).

An independent report found it was not recognised he needed post-natal hypoglycemia screening.

The inquest heard “Teddy” was discharged with his mum, Kim, from hospital.

She noticed his colour was not right after she put him in his cot at home.

His father, Jason, took “Teddy” off her and he was floppy, the hearing was told.

Mr Errington Rozkalns called 999 and did CPR before Teddy was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham, with his mother with him in an ambulance.

He arrived in cardiac arrest and, despite efforts to save him, he died.

The main finding of a post-mortem was sudden unexpected neonatal death.
